Discography

Here is the list of my official releases so far. The sound bites are intentionaly exported in a mediocre audio quality, so that you can hear what the song is like, but the labels won't kick my ass for spreading for free the music they sell. If you like what you hear and you'd like me (or our project First Effect) to remix your stuff, head to the contact page.

2011

Caira - Yellow Maple (First Effect remix)

First Effect duo presents their translation of 'YELLOW MAPLE' sitting somewhere between progressive and tech-trance. With its big lead and even bigger pay off, this tune is a real danceable trancer.

Latham & Quano - Point Of Impact (First Effect remix)

When Chris and I heard the original, we really saw potential for a dancefloor smasher. The original mix has a very quiet and melodramatic soundscape and we asked ourselves the following question: Could we make a happy tune out of it?

So, we started up our studio gear, and here it is, an euphoric choon full of good feelings and major chords. If you like trance that makes you dance, featuring male vocals, chords of pikes and a huge buildup towards a nasty acid line and a stomping beat, this is one for you!

Miroslav Vrlik - Deep Abyss (First Effect remix)

Looking back at my discography, there are few tracks that offer me as much pride and satisfaction as this one. Powerful and yet refined, this is one of the tracks that can work its charm on a dancefloor, and that most people won't be able to put a name on.

Originally written by the upcoming slovak producer Miroslav Vrlik, it was offered to us as a remix job by our label Silent Shore Records. Chris and I have quickly realised how much potential the track had, and while Miroslav's approach to the original track was fast and epic, we decided to bring a more laidback twist to the release.

Compared to the original version, we have parted with a layer of the main lead, to build something a little more focused on the original chords that came with the song. We have spiced it up with our signature computer beeps, and with a few fractions of female aaah's and ooh's, for good measure.

The result is a stomping number, with a fierce electro-ish bassline and yet all the delicate melody of the original, plus some airy pads, pianos and voices for a refreshing change.

Type 41 - Riptide (Jordan Waeles intro & club remixes)

Jordan Waeles gives us two remixes on this release, the Intro Remix and the Club Remix. The intro Remix starts out with some amazing pads and atmosphere with an amazing piano maintaining a simple melody which leads into the beat. Shortly after the breakdown, the beat begins once again with a thick bass line and melody which shows the energy of the song in its purest form. The Club Remix is very much the same as the Intro Remix but has been re-produced to be DJ friendly for clubs.

Steve Angello & Laidback Luke - Be (Jordan Waeles remix)

"Be" is an amazing house tune that got me hooked since the first time I heard it. Back when it started playing in clubs, I was still a house DJ as well, and I was a bit sad that I couldn't hammer that tune in my trance sets. So, I put some effort in finding the original voice that they had sampled, and I re-did it in a tech-trance fashion.

The result is a banging tech-trance track that packs the hell of a punch, and yet still features the dance organ and the great voice from the original tune!
